New Zealand has a lot to offer and is especially versatile in its tourist attractions. The numerous fiords are one example and especially noteworthy is the Milford Sound!
Why should I visit?
Primarily, the Milford Sound is about its scenery, obviously, but water sports are also possible. Due to its remote location on the west coast of New Zealand’s South Island, about 300 km north of Queenstown, it is quite hard to reach. However, many tours are available from nearby cities and within the Sound.
Apart from the post-card-view bay there are also two waterfalls and mountains to explore, all providing spectacular views. So spectacular even that Rudyard Kipling went as far as calling it the eighth wonder of the world. Sure, everyone has his personal preferences, but there is only one way to find out, whether Kipping was right or wrong.
The chance of rain is actually pretty high, roughly 50 percent, but even in wet weather, the Sound is worth a trip as you can see below. In fact, the Milford Sound is one of New Zealand’s wettest places.
